night shoot doesn't relate to len size, u just need to have bulb mode(longer exposure) in ur cam to do night shot. even not bulb mode but 3 sec to 10 sec will do. ;)

Bigger doesn't means better night shot.. AT least not in this case.

In order to take night shot, teh shutter speed must be able to set to at least 4 sec or above. I think most digital camera nowadays will be able to do that. A tripod or stable support is need to keep the camera stable during the exposure.

If u think compact, there is a few model than is realtively small.

some requirement for camera are as follows :
1. able to exposure > 1 sec in manual mode
2. zero noise CCD or noise reduction
3. a stable tripod
4. support timer mode or shutter cable release ( optional )

Tks guys for the feedback! I am thinking to get the Canon S45 as I prefer auto type of camera(Not very good in manual adjusting). Do not know whether this camera will take good night shoot or not?

hi,

i have the older cousin of the S45, the S40. takes pretty decent nite shots, but needs a stable hand or a tripod. High exposure + wide aperture setting (2.8 on the s40) on AE mode can give nice shots too. Otherwise, just play with the manual mode.

Hi,

I am a canon s30 users.
The nite shots is okay but i think i should mention about the Auto AiAF focus deature which sometimes choose between 3 boxes in it.
Do compare it with Minolta F100 cos i am torn between the 2 for nite shots but after buying i still duno which is better.
Any F100 users care to comment?

Auto Mode and night shots do not usually go well together, you may need to adjust the shutter speed and the aperture in Manual.

I'm a F100 user

For night shots you gotta to adjust the shutter mode

So far F100 night shots are pretty decent

I'm very satisfied

Get a minolta F100

Highly Recommended
